If for some reason you’ve seen Star Wars but you haven’t yet partaken of Mel Brooks‘ classic parody Spaceballs, it’s about time you fixed that. In classic Mel Brooks fashion, Spaceballs mocks everything about Star Wars with self-referenctial humor, fourth wall breaks, and jokes about sci-fi tropes and goofy characters like Dark Helmet. It’s a favorite among comedy fans and sci-fi fans alike.
And now there’s the chance to partake in wise Yogurt’s noble endeavor of merchandising. One fan at LEGO Ideas has crafted two custom LEGO sets that give two of the iconic spacecrafts from Spaceballs the building block treatment. You can help vote to make them a reality.

Since Jurassic World is all the rage right now, there’s been plenty of nostalgia looking back at the original Jurassic Park. But we’ve yet to see a resurgence of toys dedicated to the original Steven Spielberg dinosaur adventure. However, that could change with a little bit of help from fans.
There’s a project that just surfaced at LEGO Ideas that has an awesome building block version of the visitor center from Jurassic Park. It’s an impressive set that actually has some pretty clever moving parts that allow you to see inside the visitor center, where more than a few pivotal locations from the film have been recreated.

It’s also become a visual landmark for artists, including today’s pop culture artists. Kevin Tong, Laurent Durieux and Matt Ferguson have all done posters for the film. The latest is from Killian Eng. His take is a bit different than the others, concentrating less on the characters and more on the planet itself. It will be released June 17; check out the Killian Eng Forbidden Planet posters below. Read More »
